Company information

Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.

Property information

The Barbican, positioned beyond an old stone bridge over the Glenarm River, is a charming building with gothic windows and a stone turret staircase. Built in 1825 from local basalt, this medieval miniature castle is a perfect romantic hideaway in one of Ulster's oldest villages. Outdoor events take place at Glenarm Castle and Estate throughout the year and this may impact your stay at Barbican. Please ensure to check out their event page prior to booking.
